It’s not everyday I find steampunk gear that I really like. Don’t get me wrong there’s some awesome stuff out there, like this Stormtrooper Riding Mask, but most of the time I‘m just not that impressed. That said, I simply cannot take my eyes off this flash drive — it’s pretty damn cool.
Unfortunately, it’s just a one-off some Russian guy made and we can’t go buy one anywhere, but it really does have that Victorian look we love so much. It works just like any other USB drive out there, the only difference is this one is stuck inside a brass, 5-ring combination lock so your dirty little secret data is always safe.
The builder modeled it in 3D, had the pieces fabricated and then assembled it himself. It looks great, but I definitely wouldn’t want to be the one who had to put it together. Lining up the pins and gears seems like it could get pretty frustrating if you hadn’t done it before. You can check out the whole the project here.
